Ladies’ league Friday 1 July

The rain which had been threatening all day on Friday 1 July stayed away from most of the matches played in the C Tarleton Hodgson sponsored ladies’ league that night. With all the re-arranged matches the top of the league table is a bit distorted, but Port St Mary, Castletown and South Ramsey seem to be the teams fighting for top spot. (Can I remind captains to let me know when matches have been re-scheduled and the date on which the match will actually be played ). Top scorers of the night were Castletown, dropping just one game to Purt le Moirrey, whose lone winner was Chris Price .Port St Mary were pegged back by Nobles in a low scoring encounter winning just 4 of the 9 games, three to single figures which did give them the advantage on points despite Paula Firth’s good win. South Ramsey won 7 games but with the two winners for Ballaugh, Christine MacDonald and Jenny Maddrell, winning to single figures, they too ended with a disappointing total. Marown had a terrific win against Douglas, ending as second highest scorers of the evening, with some very close games particularly the 21-20 win by Pat Withers over Sue Caley. There were also good wins for Peel at Port Erin and for Mooragh Park who had six wins against Onchan.
